On the links provided there is a questionnaire (divided in 2 parts) which consists of 17Questions and will take around 5minutes to complete.
This is for a dissertation on rock climbing: mental and physical barriers.
I hope the questions make sense and thank you for taking part.
As much as feedback is appreciated, please don't criticize endlessly as the questions are not made to please you but for me to gather the information I need and have not been able to expand on them or go in depth.

If it is the same questionnaire you should say so in the post as you will get biased results if the same people fill it out twice (on different computers for example).
done your survey :) was fairly good.
Filled it in, but I've got to say I found part 2 a bit difficult to answer.
1. I filled this in back to front at first, "5" is an odd choice for "never concerned".
2. Actually don't understand the question:
"When examining a new climb that reflects your climbing level or higher, which do you feel best applies to you and your abilities?". Are you really asking whether I feel tired just looking at a new climb? I have assumed you're asking how I expect to feel while climbing it.
3. To me "very excited" and "very nervous" are not a sliding scale between the two.
I rather liked the possibility of being totally disinterested in a climb i'd just chosen to do!
